Our students keep making their voice heard and their skills recognized on a worldwide scale, as augmented reality toys SCOPE project by Frantz Lasorne’s several awards at Laval Virtual show...
One of our school’s rising stars Frantz Lasorne keeps skyrocketing : after launching a tremendous buzz on the Internet with his project Scope and thereby arousing the interest of leading players LEGO and UBISOFT, he has recently been awarded two prizes during Laval Virtual an international event dedicated to virtual reality held in Laval, France :
- The IVRC Award (International Virtual Reality Contest) supplemented with an invitation to take part in the main contest held in Japan in October 2009.
- The world famous ACM SIGGRAPH Awards program recognizes individuals who have made a significant contribution to the computer graphics community through their research, teaching, service, or writing. Frantz Lasorne will go showcase his project during the upcoming edition of Siggraph in New Orleans, in August 2009, in the "Emerging Technologies" category.
Three other students who displayed their projects at the “Village de la Création” during Laval Virtual also participated in this contest :
Edouard Durand & Nicolas Doisy (fourth-year students) presented Noizilla on the booth where L’École de design advertised its students’ achievements and services. Noizilla is an interface enabling users to organize and select music by playing (snapping their fingers, tapping etc.) the kind of rhythm they wish to listen to.
Frantz Lasorne and Toni Da Luz are both fifth-year students who enrolled in the topic-oriented Master’s Program focusing on "Virtual Reality" and are both in the process of completing a double degree jointly run by L’École de design and Arts et Métiers ParisTech (a French higher education institution specializing in mechanical and industrial engineering).
